32 teams. The journey starts now.
For the 14th straight World Cup, adidas presents the official game ball.
The latest version is "Al Rihla", translated as "The Journey" in Arabic. As the game gets faster and flight stability becomes more important, the ball is designed to travel faster and maintain speed in the air, the fastest ball in tournament history.
Al-Rihla is the first FIFA World Cup ball made using only water-based inks and glues.
The vibrant colors are inspired by the culture, boats and flag of Qatar.
